      A case of jejunogastric intussusception, occurring seven years after a gastroenterostomy, is presented. We discuss the clinical picture and present a bibliographic review of the subject.
      This case is unique as there was a stomach cavity divided in two by one septum which obstructed the anastomotic ostium.
      Assuming an influence of the previous operation, we could not find a satisfactory explanation for this case.
